On Tuesday, June 10th 2014 Morrison Hotel Gallery and animal charity Rational Animal present ECHO HOME premiered the photography exhibition of The Kills’ guitarist Jamie Hince at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in Soho, NYC.
English guitarist, singer, and songwriter Jamie Hince is a trendsetting musician with a signature sensibility that encompasses grit, humor, and sultry expressiveness. As a musician, he’s worked with cult acts such as Fiji, Scarfo, and Blyth Power, but he’s best known for his mesmerizing and sensual indie rock with The Kills, which he co-founded with singer, songwriter, guitarist, vocalist and fashion icon Alison Mosshart in 2000. To date, The Kills have released three critically acclaimed albums. Hince is one of the rare breeds of artistically fluid musicians that can authoritatively work in other mediums.
The Kills tour comes to New York City for their Governor’s Ball performance and an artistic visual compilation translating into Jamie’s photography exhibition at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, the flagship Soho branch of the fine art music photography gallery.
The idea of making this a charity focused exhibition began when Rational Animal charity reached out to The Kills with an opportunity to embrace their inner dog by creating a photo for their latest campaign in support of their signature Mother’s Comfort Project, which sews and delivers beds to homeless animals in shelters in the greater New York City area. The great British photographer Terry O’Neill and his photograph of Bridget Bardot with her dog in bed inspire the Sweet Dreams
